"Aw shucks, Dad, my very own human-manipulation bangle!" Still from Fantastic Planet

Take some time today to check out the work of Rene Laloux and Roland Topor, both illustrators and film makers. The surrealism and apocalyptic feeling in their work is unsettling at the same time as the lovingly hand-drawn illustration warms the cockles of the heart and invites further investigation. I highly recommend that you get your hands on a copy of Fantastic Planet and also take the time to watch the short film, Les Escargots, below.

Oh, and you should note that a lot of Roland Topor’s drawings are probably too hot for the office. Googlers be warned (and intrigued)!

Snort. Drawing by Roland Topor.
